Glaze – modern post-renaissance poem

RA MA Life Magazine published one of my poems!

Spring 2020

I “translated” a poem from the 6th Dalai Lama (1683 to 1706). The assignment for this poem was to translate from a language I do not understand, resulting in Glaze.

I am honored to contribute this work to the RA MA Community!

About the 6th Dalai Lama

Tsangyang Gyatso wrote poetry and songs, “but often went against but often went against the principles of the Gelug School of Tibetan Buddhism“. He rejected life as a monk, and “enjoyed a lifestyle that included drinking, the company of women, and writing love songs.” When he was 21 years old, he mysteriously disappeared, and was never found. (wikipedia). Some believe he was murdered, others believe he lived his life in secrecy somewhere between China and Mongolia.

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

      1. You’re welcome, Holly! Such an art piece visually in addition to the language mirror top to bottom… like seeing something crossing underwater and appearing to bend and flex into and from another world in the refraction taking place. This work did that for me.

          1. Yes, they certainly did! It’s important to treat great writing with a great home. Taurus and Libra energies are most likely pleased at punch with the lovingly livingly exquisite Queen of Pents home your writing was settled in by the graphic artists.
